1 - 175 (miss) very close on both of these but I haven't done them in so long I just stopped. These felt a lot better with a bigger 'dip' in the beginning...better than just a 'pop and drop'. Not sure if that makes sense but I think this is a PR.

Re: JD's CrossFit Chronicle
 
Okay - rest week at Disney...I definitely wanted to take a little time off to let my back/shoulder rest up. Went for about a 3 mile jog around our resort on Wednesday 12/5 but other than that didn't do anything.

Was really lookin' to work out yesterday but felt like crap lol! Lots of wine and bad food/lack of sleep probably played a role.

Re: JD's CrossFit Chronicle
 
Okay lets see...Did front squats on NYE and actually got close to my old PR of 245x3. Then did 195x10. Was feeling good and planned on doing a metcon but since I had some extra time I decided to work on some pistols because I hadn't done them in a while. While doing some assisted pistols I went down and somehow blew my back out. So bad in fact that I couldn't really move initially. And it's been bad since. Started getting a little bit better then I tweeked it again yesterday doing a medball clean demo. My Chiro says it's a fat disk...ice, rest, spinal flossing heat etc. Been lazy on the ice the last few days.

Ran around the gym a bit yesterday and played with the reverse hyper...still hurts when I get up and bend down but it seems a bit better.

Re: JD's CrossFit Chronicle
 
I can definitely empathize, Jason. I zinged my lower back a few months ago doing deadlifts, and had to back off of weight training for a while.

I began to study lower back injury rehab in detail, and between that and some tips from folks who follow my workout log, I came up with the following post which I think will contain a lot of valuable information for you:[LIST][*][B][URL="http://board.crossfit.com/showpost.php?p=1106861&postcount=1258"]Fixing My Back - Posterior Chain, Body Core, Upper Back & Shoulder Exercise Regimen[/URL][/B] (WFS)[/LIST]Below is an example of how I put all the exercises from that post into a comprehensive back and core exercise routine. I do this workout around 5 or 6 times per week, usually after my conditioning work. It does work, but the key is consistency over time. Once your back has healed up a bit more and most of the pain is gone, try doing some Founders and see how it goes.

50 squats
30 Push-ups
15 pull-ups

2 rounds plus 20 push-ups I think...

1/29
Sprint WOD
10 Push-ups
80 yard shuttle run (length of gym and back) rest 1 min.
Don't have my number handy...

Next day I got a bad cold and didn't do anything until...

2/5
Chelsea

EMOTM for 30 (lol) mins
5 pull-ups
10 push-ups
15 squats

6 rounds +

2/8
Did some front squats to see how my back felt

10 - 45
10 - 65
10 - 95
5 - 115
5 - 135
5 - 155

Didn't feel too bad.

Then I did a standby WOD - shortened my rope and felt pretty good warming up then couldn't string together more than a couple on my first set of DU's. Had a temper tantrum and switched ropes - went fine from there. Metcon didn't feel too, too bad. Need to check previous PR on this.

50 Double unders
10 Burpees
40 double unders
10 burpees
30 double unders
10 burpees
20 double unders
10 burpees
10 double unders
10 burpees

7:46.

Last time I did that in my log I did it in 9:05. Hard to believe I got a PR - particularly with my double under meltdown. Ahh well. I'll take it.

Re: JD's CrossFit Chronicle
 
02/09

4 rounds for time (well kind of, i hadn't done a deadlift of any kind since hurting my back - so I didn't rush)

20 deadlifts, 95
20 m handstand walk

roughly 20 mins...

2/11
215 burpees with my hockey team I train. last day so we played hooverball and let each player coach the team through 10 burpees apiece. 5 extra for not jumping and clapping.

Jason David 02-13-2013 09:48 PM

Re: JD's CrossFit Chronicle
 
02/12
Did some power clean and jerks just to see how they felt. Slowly but surely going a bit heavier.

5x65
5x95
3x115
3x135
3x155
3x175

Jerks feel stupid..need to work on those a bit more. Wasn't aggressive - back felt okay, not 100% but almost there.

02/13
Ran 2.8 miles in 23:40. Went fairly hard but didn't push it.

Thrusters, 95
C2B Pull-ups

11:55. Hadn't done this in 4 years. Pull-ups were harder because I'm about 30lbs heavier I guess. Not bad overall...PR was 11:29. Horrible WOD.

Did rowing intervals today. 4x500 with 2 mins rest between each interval. Felt awful but was surprised with my times. I did this a while back and had pretty similar times but with 3 minutes rest. Also haven't been eating hardly any carbs recently...

1. 1:37.8
2. 1:44.7
3. 1:51.5
4. 1:51.5[/QUOTE]

Did this again...

02/21/12

1. 1:37.7
2. 1:47.7
3. 1:50.8
4. 1:51.4

Hmm...is this a PR?? 3 out of my 4 times were better but that 2nd interval was much slower.
Overall total of abou 2 secs slower total.

Edit: Now that I think about it, I may have looked at the wrong #on my 2nd interval. I may have looked at the expected finish time not the finish time...who knows.

Bad day...happened to read an article today about training to your intuition...well I snatch balanced up to 145 but didn't feel right, missed that twice so I just stopped. Didn't have it. Not sure what the problem was, maybe the alcohol from the night before or something I ate but something wasn't right.

30 snatches, 135
20 burpees
30 snatches, 165
10 burpees
As many snatches as possible in remaining time at 210 lol.

Got 150. 2 attempts at 165 missed. First one tried a full snatch. Bar went way higher than I expected and I lost control of it...2nd attempt was just a mess. If I had to do it over again I would probably just try a power snatch first attempt. Don't plan on redoing any WOD's this year. I've been pretty much slightly injured for over year and as a result haven't gotten any stronger. Hoping to make a lot of strength gains this year...prepping for the 40 and older Open in a few years.

Kind of tweaked my left side of my back on the last rep...such an idiot.

03/24/13

13.2
5 Push press, 115
10 Deadlifts, 115
15 Box jumps, 24
6 rounds + 13 box jumps (all jumps) 208. Got beat by most guys in the gym - may do this again with step ups just to see the difference and maybe feel a bit better about myself. ugh...what a crappy week.

Re-did 13.2 with all step ups and got 231. Still a horrible WOD for me.
